SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher (model KUDS01IJBL) has black gunk inside

That black gunk is caused by soap deposits and food particles that do not get washed down the drain. This all collects in the area around the door gasket and front of the wash tub and forms a sticky black sludge. You need to periodically clean the interior of the dishwasher out with a non-abrasive cleaner with some bleach in it to kill bacteria. You should also check the wash pump sump (located under the lower spray arm) to make sure it is not being clogged with food and debris. In order to access the pump sump, you will need to perform the following:

1. Remove the lower wash rack and lower spray arm.

2. Remove the upper wash rack and spray arm.

3. Locate the screws holding in the upper spray feed tube. Remove the screws to the feed tube and turn the whole assembly 1/4 turn to the right (CW direction). The entire assembly will unlock from the wash pump assembly and lift out.

4. Remove the strainer assembly (known as an accumulator) that covers the pump sump area.

Inspect the sump area for food particles and debris that may be contributing to the mess inside the wash tub. If you need some guidance, pcappliancerepair.com has some very helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you.

If you have any questions, or require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

SOURCE: HOW TO REMOVE A WHIRLPOOL DU980QPDQ3 DISHWASHER

You should first pull the unit out.
Here is a video that will show you how to do it.
Click on the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bgs_JicFQg

Now that the dishwasher is out there should be two screws in each side of the hinge to remove.
If screws are not present then look for locator pins.
To install line the holes up and insert a small screwdriver into the holes to keep them in place...using two people to do this will make the job much easier.If you have further questions please post.

Samsung dishwasher sprays gunk all over my glasses. When the cycle is over they are coated with dried bits of gunk. Dishes are dirtier than when they went in.



I have the same problem with gunk and spots on dishes. I took apart the parts at bottom covering the heating element. There is all sorts of gunk on everything. I cleaned it all, even under gaskets and filter screen. I am neither sure what caused it nor how to prevent it. My thinking maybe the water source. Water in my town has gotten worse in quality and has bad smell. I use a major water filter system for drinking water. My thought is that the heating element is drying the water up and leaving sediment from water.

Leaving a white film on everything


Hi, what you are currently experiencing is as a result of dishwasher detergent, combined with mineral deposits from hard water, which in yurn can leave a white film on the inside of the dishwasher.
You have to clean the dishwasher by sprinkling baking soda onto a damp cloth. Scrub the inside of the dishwasher to remove soap scum, grime and mineral deposits.
Pour 2 cups white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher. Turn the dishwasher on and run it on a full cycle. Stop the dishwasher halfway through the wash cycle and allow the vinegar and steam to work on the remaining mineral deposits for 20 minutes before resuming the cycle.
Open the dishwasher and dry the interior with clean, dry cloths. Keep the door propped open for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the dishwasher to dry completely.

Hope it helps....

Burning smell in in dryer


Take a flashlight and look inside the drum at the holes on the back end of the drum where the hot air comes in. On mine, there is an air deflector on the back side of the drum and the space between this deflector and the drum was packed with lint. The lint blocked about half the holes. I had to take the drum out, remove this deflector by removing four screws inside the drum then cleaning out the lint. The lint was all brown and scorched.

Whirlpool dishwasher. dishes on top rack are not getting clean


Check the center sprayer is not clogged. The two arms should have clear holes and some of the sprayers have a center post that raises to clean the top rack. Make sure the center post lifts by hand and is not stuck with food or gunk.

Not cleaning properly


Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film.  Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa) Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry.  It looks super inside - the gunk is gone.  I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!

Whirlpool built-in dishwasher - has sprayer for lower and upper racks. Have had to have repairman out to clean out dishwasher as residue blocks water from getting to upper rack - is there any way to do...


Yes, you will need to purchase a set of torx style screw drivers at your local hardware store. Remove the upper and lower spray arms and clean the debris out of the spray holes. Remove the screws that hold the filter in place and remove the gunk out of the sump. In the future stop using gels or gelpacks, just use electrasol powder or cascade powder. The gels and gelpacks clog up dishwashers like you would not believe. Run some Lemi-shine through the machine on a monthly basis, Lemi-shine is available at most walmarts.

There is gunk in the bottom of my dishwasher by the drain. Really sticky gunk. How do I get it out?


Depending on what that 'gunk' is, will determine your best course of action. If it is food byproducts from the wash process and you've not cleaned out the filter, you should remove as much of that gunk with a dishtowel and warm water, then use white vinegar to break down any other leftover material. Rinse with clean warm water. Check the filter and clean it after each wash process to make sure you aren't restricting drain water from being pumped out. Once you've removed th emajority of that material, you could run a dishless wash cycle on the sanitary setting to clean out anything that remained... Hope this helps...

How do you unclog the hose to a whirlpool gold dishwasher? It overflows into my sink. I have checked the hose and there doesn't appear to be a clog.


I had this same problem and solved it. The black rubber hose leading from my Disposal to the overflow vent on the sink corner was clogged. You will need to remove the hose via 2 hose clamps and scrape out the nasty gunk inside. Did I say Nasty???? I meant NASTY! I used a straight piece of 1/2" conduit to scrape the inside walls and then pushed a piece of rag through it again and again till it was clean. Don't forget to check the disposal nipple which leads into the grinding chamber. That thing was nastily clogged on mine. Had to use a knife or something (I don't recal) to scrape out the walls of this 2-3" deep opening. Works like a charm now.

I'll save you some trouble.....I took apart the vent and the dishwasher hose all for not! They were clean as a whistle. It was that dang disposal cauding all the problems.

Good luck! Hope this helps!
